Feeding Stingrays In Castaway Cay

We're in the water,
it comes up to my waist.

One of the instructors
informs us about
the right way to feed
the slippery stingrays,
and when we're not to feed them.

They come up these
special feeding platforms,
and you hold small pieces
of shrimp, octopus, and
these green protein bars.

You hold them between
your fingers,
palms down on the platform.

The stingrays float up,
and put their suction-y
mouths over the food,
and basically vacuum
up the food,
right out of your hands.

The singrays are slimy,
and don't really seem
to like to be touched.

The experience was nice,
and it was pretty fun.
I'd recomend it
to everyone!

Work in progress! During my vacation cruise on the Disney Dream, we went to Castaway Cay, a disney owned Bahama island. My mother, my sister, and I swam with stingrays, and got to feed them too! It was alot of fun, and I'd recomend the Disney Cruises to Everyone!!
